PeopleSoft Human Resources Management System (HRMS) Input Validation Holes Let Remote Users Conduct Cross-Site Scripting Attacks
SecurityTracker Alert ID:  1011433
SecurityTracker URL:  http://securitytracker.com/id/1011433
CVE Reference:   GENERIC-MAP-NOMATCH   (Links to External Site)
Date:  Sep 28 2004
Impact:   Disclosure of authentication information, Disclosure of user information, Execution of arbitrary code via network, Modification of user information

Version(s): 7
Description:   An input validation vulnerability was reported in PeopleSoft Human Resources Management System (HRMS). A remote user can conduct cross-site scripting attacks.

AUSCERT reported that a remote user can exploit a cross-site scripting flaw in the default HRMS configuration to gain unauthorized access to confidential data within the target PeopleSoft HRMS system. The flaws reside in some debugging and utility scripts that are included in the default installation.

A remote user can create a specially crafted input that, when loaded by a target user, will cause arbitrary scripting code to be executed by the target user's browser. The code will originate from the site running the HRMS software and will run in the security context of that site. As a result, the code will be able to access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site, access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the site, or take actions on the site acting as the target user.

Impact:   A remote user can access the target user's cookies (including authentication cookies), if any, associated with the site running the HRMS software, access data recently submitted by the target user via web form to the site, or take actions on the site acting as the target user.
Solution:   No solution was available at the time of this entry.

AUSCERT indicates that, as a workaround, you can:

1) Remove the line referencing utils from the file 'user/components/header.htm' and remove the utils directory/folder completely. The same scripts may also be installed in '/hrtest' or a similarly named directory and must also be removed from that directory.

2) Remove the file 'user/ASP/HA_DIRECT_DEP_DTL/HA_DIRECT_DEP_DTL_save.asp', which may have a different name in some installations.
